At the height of World War II, Yaakov-Jacques Kalderon is a Jewish soldier in the Yugoslavian army, fighting against the German forces. When he falls captive at the hands of the enemy Yaakov knows that in order to survive, he will have no choice but to hide his identity from everyone – even the closest of allies.

Years later, after Yaakov-Jacques’s death, his daughter happens upon an old diary written in a foreign language. As she works to interpret it, the truth of her father’s incredible story finally begins to come to light, after years of being shrouded in secrecy.

One Day You'll Thank Me

A young girl’s dream of escaping the circumstances of her birth and lineage takes form in this new literary voice.

There are a lot of things 5-year-old Yanina Lishanski doesn’t understand. She doesn’t understand why she only sees her family in old photographs, or why she must never talk about her parents’ life in Germany before 1950. She doesn’t understand why the neighborhood children mock her accent, or why she has to go to sleep hungry each night.

But Yanina also understands many things. Like how she always wants more out of life. More from her education, more from her emotionally abusive mother and her violent father. More from her friends and loved ones.

Encapsulating the immigrant experience of the 1950s through the eyes of a child born to a world she will forever be a stranger to, Yanina’s complex relationships with her family, her sister, and her childhood romances all pose a fascinating question. How much are we really slaves to our upbringing, and the circumstances into which we’re born? Can Yanina escape her fate, and become something more? Or will she be forever haunted by the words of her mother, “One day you’ll thank me for this”?

The Women of the Berlin Salon

The Age of Enlightenment will bring more hardship than reason, as three young women set out to shape their futures – and pay the ultimate price.

By the end of the 18th century, German high society is on the precipice of enlightenment. Rachel Levin, the restless daughter in a successful family of merchants, forms a strong and lasting connection with Henrietta and Dorothea – each of them a member of known and well-respected Jewish families. Yet the three of them are far from respected, or free. In a society where a woman’s value is measured by the man in front of her, the three independent-thinking women set out to make their own paths in life – as Berlin’s most popular Salonnières.

United by their passion on the backdrop of rising German nationalism, where being born Jewish, not to mention a woman, is far from advantageous – Rachel, Henrietta, and Dorothea each face challenges of the mind, soul, and heart. Finding their place in history will not only put them at risk. They will soon find their dreams can cost them far more than their status.

The Question of Jewish Identity

In this intriguing work based on years of research, Dr. Ruth Shamir Popkin guides readers through critical issues at the center of debate, both in the Jewish world in Israel and in the Jewish Diaspora that are critical to the continuity of the Jewish people.

The book elegantly addresses multiple questions revolving around Jewish identity, such as:

  • *Who is a Jew?
  • *Are Jews a nation or no more than a religious community?
  • *What does Jewish identity look like today, and how has it been affected by antisemitism?
  • *How do Diaspora Jews view Israeli identity and how do Israelis view Diaspora Jews?

Dr. Shamir Popkin reviews these complex and continually changing Jewish identities. She contends that Jews have no alternative – if their overarching identity is to be preserved then they must internalize multiculturalism to create an inclusive Jewish identity for the 21st century, in spite of the acute conflicts.

Adaptive Teaching

Adaptive teaching does not endeavor to “fix” anything, because no one is broken. Its purpose is to accommodate education so that it is suited to all students, in light of goals, needs, and characters.

When educators are asked about inclusion and acceptance of all students, their honest response is that inclusion is an important part of the educational assignment, but the understanding of how to apply such a concept to the classroom is often lacking and considered the domain of special education teachers alone.

However, as social and educational awareness to this issue grows, winds of change are blowing. Educators must adapt their strategies and approaches, their methods and means to the needs and singularity of each of their students.

Adaptive Teaching offers a new, relevant, realistic approach to inclusive education. It includes both theory and practical tools, but is dependent on educators’ willingness to contemplate themselves through this new attitude and adapt themselves to their students’ needs and today’s educational reality.

Dr. Gilat Trabelsi is a researcher, educational counselor, and senior teacher training expert. In her book, she shares crucial information that will help educators:

*Reduce the anxiety surrounding the demands of adaptive teaching

*Form awareness and opinions regarding adaptive teaching as a worldview

*Learn how to design functions and skills in all fields of knowledge, based on accumulative experience

Is Covid 19 The Flood 2.0?

Is the COVID-19 pandemic simply a devastating turn of events… or is there a far deeper meaning behind it?

COVID-19 shook the world like nothing ever before. For the first time in a long time, a pandemic spread globally, and no one was safe from its wrath. While scientists have been busy with how, when, where, and what can be done to stop it, few have stopped to think about a far more important, fundamental question: why?

Just like the flood in Noah’s time, COVID-19 is a warning to the world. It is a stop sign, a plea to take a step back and look at what we have become – as individuals, as societies, as a whole. Through the wisdom and teachings of the bible, this book endeavors to explain the cause and meaning behind the virus, and to guide humanity on its path to redemption.

Writ in Water

This book, based on wide-ranging research on water, views the world through the rippling, complex lens of water. It looks at the emergence of civilizations and their decay, delves into creation myths, ponders the place of water in the human psyche as expressed in art and poetry and folklore, considers its role as a factor of production, a source of energy, a conduit of transportation, and a consumer good, examines changing concepts of physical and spiritual cleanliness, and notes the magical powers of springs and wishing wells and rainmakers.

It reveals how this colorless, tasteless, and odorless substance has made such an impact on our bodies and our souls. Like water itself, it meanders far and wide, and it may, just possibly, restore our sense of wonder at this elixir of life.

Nina Selbst's pellucid and friendly style of writing and her overflowing enthusiasm for her subject assure the reader not only an enlightening experience but also a pleasurable one.

He was caught taking the yellow patch off his clothes and trying to sneak back into the city.

Interspersed in the text there are quotations from various religious sources – Jewish, Christian, and mystical – underlining the author’s belief in the survival of the human spirit in the face of adversity.

The Architectural Studio

Learn and understand the creative process of building an architecture project.

This book describes the process of creating an architectural project, in an academic studio for architecture studies.

The process is built on the premise that architecture is a discipline of applied arts, which is why it is characterized by rational forward-thinking combined with emotional and artistic reasoning.

The process of architectural creation presented in this book begins with the development of an idea by an architect. Only after consolidating this idea and fitting it into the designated geographical site does the programmatic planning begin, merging with the theoretical composition.

Accordingly, two processes are especially highlighted: the emotional-creative reasoning as a foundation for developing the architectural project, together with its integration to its surroundings.

The book presents two aspects of the architectural creation. The first is the assimilation of the building in nature and the second is its assimilation in an urban environment.

All of the materials in this book are born from dozens of years of teaching in an architectural studio, and experience accumulated from teaching in schools in Israel and abroad.

As the book addresses the creative process, it is intended not only for those who teach or study architecture, but for anyone interested in creative processes in general.

Giving Birth- The Real Deal

The most important things you should know and no one told you about childbirth

Birth and early motherhood are often painted as beautiful, natural, magical experiences. While this is true, there is so much more to the process – and often, new mothers find themselves unprepared and overwhelmed, simply for the lack of knowledge.

It was not so long ago that we lived in clans, and before that in tribes. The wisdom of the tribe flowed through our veins. By the time a woman became pregnant, she already knew what she was getting into, and was surrounded with support.

Nowadays, most women are exposed to only a fragment of this great wisdom and mostly in real time – when they are pregnant. Though we live in an information age, new mothers are often unaware of crucial things they should know about childbirth and experience a huge gap between how they imagine early motherhood and what their actual day-to-day looks like.

Following her birthing experience, Keren Boyko embarked on a journey to help expecting mothers fill that gap of crucial knowledge. She gathered twenty-two new moms and well-known birth specialists, to share their professional wisdom, and their brave, honest and humor-filled testimonies. Together, they have created a modern tribal wisdom which will guide you through this wondrous, challenging and powerful time in the best way possible.

Happily Ever After

In children’s fairytales, love is magic. In real life, love is magic you have to work hard for.

Every romantic relationship begins with the spark of falling in love, magnetizes two hearts of a prince and a princess, and then moves on to the Big Bang of routine and children, followed by a long, cold winter: the hearts close off, the sexuality shuts down, and the love freezes. The exhausted prince and princess morph into a dragon and a witch, and the relationship becomes an arena of battle and pain.

If they can make it through the struggles along their path – get through the boggy marsh of arguments, accept the long silences, the boredom, the suffocation, and the burning need to escape – if they make it through fire and ice without breaking up, they will discover the final stage of their evolution: the phase of the king and queen.

The king and queen know everything about each other, acknowledge their weaknesses and strengths, the beautiful and the ugly, the good and the bad in themselves and in their partner, and choose to focus on the good. Their relationship contains the initial infatuation together with the struggles of the journey and creates depth and development. This is ripe, mature, fulfilling love.

Happily Ever After is written with humor meant to capture the hearts of its readers. It is filled with accurate descriptions of daily scenes and arouses in (almost) every couple a sense of empathy, the calming feeling that everything will be ok, and the hope of compensation after the hard work of maintaining their relationship. This book teaches readers how to work on challenges in their romantic relationships, instead of running from them.

What Really Is

Our true nature is simple and beautiful, thoughts are complicated and intricate. Learn to know the difference.

Our true nature is always present, in each moment, as it is now. We didn’t create it and we can’t stop it. Yet we’ve been taught that what we can’t perceive with our mind and senses is not real, that intuition is unreliable and living like this is dangerous, immature and irresponsible.

The truth is contrary to this. Our thoughts and understandings are by their very nature temporary and fragile. They come from the assumption that we can actually know or control things. And so we defend, attack, withdraw, and even kill or die for these beliefs. But when we do, the essence of our true spirit is brutally pushed aside and we lose so much of life.

What Really Is comes to convey life and the world, not as the interpreting mind describes them, but in their original form – the essence is to know the difference.

Fracture Point

He thought he was done with war. He was wrong…

Just days before Itay Evron completes his training with Israeli Security Agency, a savage terrorist group brazenly abducts a young corporal who, with his extraordinary memory, could give the murderous faction an unfathomable advantage — with terrifying consequences.

A former soldier distinguished for his bravery, but also a man broken by the brutalities of war — Evron meets and falls in love with Donna, a stunning university student with a magnetic smile and a full-bodied energy that brightens his very existence — to the depths of his fractured, war-ravaged soul.

His new job with the ISA, and Donna's love, give Evron hope for a second chance at life — a future worth living.

The Mountain Girls

The extraordinary story of women in a traditional community of the late 19th century.

Zarhin was kidnapped at a young age by a Muslim man who coveted her beauty. He took her to his village, married her, and she bore him a son. Now she faces an impossible dilemma: stay in the society that has been forced upon her, raise her child and presumably many more in it, or leave everything behind and run?

14-year-old Shiraz was forced to wed a boring and conservative man who is 20 years her senior. She used to walk the courtyard in her stunning clothes and chiming bracelets which would turn the heads of all the men, but made her insufferable in the eyes of the women of her new family. Will she manage to overcome the age gap and spend the rest of her life with a man she did not choose?

Amalia, too, was married at age 14. In the preliminary engagement celebrations she was delighted with the gifts and jewelry bestowed upon her by her husband’s family, but on the night of her wedding as she entered the marital room with her new husband she panicked, told him she was going to the bathroom, and fled the house barefoot in nothing but a nightgown.

They were born into a world of inequality, where a woman’s role is to bear children, raise them, and serve her husband. The Mountain Girls is the fascinating story behind the women of the traditional Jewish community in the late 19th century. Women whose rights were taken from them, whose dreams were shattered before they had even reached adulthood, and who were forced to enlist their wisdom, courage, daring, and mutual support to face the challenges of a chauvinist world.

The Israeli Breakthrough

How did the State of Israel evolve from a marginal economy to one of the significant players in the global trade market?

For many years following its establishment, the small State of Israel was an impoverished country and suffered from great trade deficit, but since the 1980’s it has risen up into a productive, trading country with a thriving economy. How was all this possible despite intricate political challenges?

During the years of technological revolutions and virtual cross-continent domains, the world was slowly globalized. New trade blocs and trade accords were formed, traditional political alliances fell apart, and a long process of peace in the Middle East began.

Zohar Peri served in many positions in the Israeli Ministry of Industry and Trade – commercial attaché in Bonn, Representative in the international economic organizations in Geneva, Switzerland, head of the Foreign Trade Department and Israel’s Economic minister to North America. He was involved in every one of the crossroads that led Israel to its position as a leading player in international trade.

His unique book sheds light on fascinating historical events, as well as the diplomatic and administrative behind-the-scenes work that led to the small Middle Eastern country’s breakthrough as one of the most significant trading economies in the world.

This memoir is interwoven with stories of both edifying and amusing events experienced by the author.

Night Raiders

Lietuenant General Gadi Eizenkot, former 21st IDF Chief of Staff: “’Night Raiders’ chronicles the background for the reprisal operations and lays out a profound analysis of their contribution to Israel’s security. The book is of incredible historical value, but even more importantly – it is crucial for the present and future commanders of the IDF, who can use it to learn about the spirit, initiative, and expertise of the fighters and commanders of the past.”

In the years following the establishment of the State of Israel in 1948, its Jewish citizens suffered from perpetual terror acts courtesy of their Arab neighbors, who infiltrated its borders with the purpose of destroying property and even taking lives.

At first, Israel employed a passive strategy, guarding its borders, observing its enemy, placing ambushes on their path, and holding political discussions about ceasefires. But the attacks did not cease, on the contrary, they multiplied, and the IDF was forced to take an active approach.

This is the fascinating story of the fighters and commanders of Paratrooper Unit 101 of the 890th Battalion, and of 202nd Brigade. The heroic reprisal operations which they carried out over the border between 1953 and 1956 allowed the IDF to give Israel’s citizens relative peace.

The fast-paced descriptions laid out in the book are reminiscent of a true thriller, and it is impossible to put down. It brings to life the unique operational tactics employed by the fighters who would later become legends, among them Ariel Sharon, commander of the 890th Battalion and 11th Prime Minister of Israel.

Uzi Eilam was among the first Israeli paratroopers and served as deputy to Meir Har-Tzion, one of the establishers of the special unit. Eilam was awarded the Medal of Courage for his bravery and resourcefulness during Operation Black Arrow, and in 2002 was awarded the Israel Defense Prize.

A world facing total destruction depends upon the power of the only woman who can save it.

In the small, godforsaken town of Denoj’ar, a little girl named Allart is born. She is taken in and raised by the Servant, the final descendent of a long lineage of alchemists who have devoted their lives to the eradication of the soul demons.

The Freedom to Choose

Are we truly destined to live in one happy relationship, till death do us part?

Many believe that somewhere out there is our one and only soulmate, and that our love cannot be given to more than one person at a time. This is what we have been taught, but is it true?

The Freedom to Choose is a brave book that broaches questions every person, and certainly every couple, should ask themselves. Masha Halevi (PhD), a couples' mediator, counselor and an expert on alternative relationships has decided to take a different path.

Following 15 monogamous years with her husband, she is still happily married but has another loving partner for the past 8 years. She has used her rich personal and professional experiences as a researcher and therapist to help countless couples considering unconventional ways of life with important questions relevant to anyone’s life:

*Does a committed relationship have to contradict freedom, excitement and adventure?

*Does a marriage have to be dissolved as soon as one finds themselves attracted to someone else, in love with someone else, or even no longer attracted to their spouse?

*Why are we expected to be monogamous if this is so hard for so many people at a certain point?

*How does one deal with fear and jealousy, which seem to be an inseparable part of non-monogamous relationships?

*Is there a way to conduct conscious and truly free monogamy?

This book attempts to challenge these assumptions and aims to radically alter the way we think about relationships.

Freedom begins with the freedom to choose.

ENTROPY

The greatest blunder ever in the history of science.

The Second Law of thermodynamics, the law of entropy, is one of the longest-standing laws of physics, unchanged even by the last century’s two drastic revolutions in physics.

However, the concept of entropy has long been misinterpreted and misused – making it the greatest ever blunder in the history of science, propagated for decades by scientists and non-scientists alike.

This blunder was initially and primarily brought on by a deep misunderstanding of the concept of entropy. Ironically, ignorance about the meaning of entropy has led some scientists to associate entropy with ignorance, and the Second Law with the “law of spreading ignorance.”

In his book, Arieh Ben-Naim, a respected professor of physical chemistry, attempts to right these wrongs. He scrutinizes twelve misguided definitions and interpretations of entropy, brings order to the chaos, and finally lays out the true meaning of entropy in clear and accessible language anyone can understand.

Be and it will Be

We discover creation through our state of being!

Most of us believe that something needs to happen or to be achieved in order for us to be happy. We all have that one thing or more, typically related to money, relationships, or better health, which we see as essential for our well-being.

And then, in many cases, that thing happens to us. But after a short reprieve, we find ourselves back to the same feeling of lacking another thing that would make us happy.

The secret revealed in this book is that happiness and serenity are our default state of being.

We do not need to add something, but rather feel through and let go of those negative feelings that hinder our natural state of being. And it is much simpler than we think as we don’t really create our lives but rather discover creation as God has already created the Universe.

"Be and it will Be" is a practical spiritual book showing readers how to originate desired changes in their lives through their state of being. The book is written in a conversation format, displaying a dialogue between Zach Sivan, a young entrepreneur, looking for the solutions for mundane challenges in business, family and career, and Ronny Hatchwell, a spiritual guide, channeler and the founder of "be and it will be" method, who is helping him to achieve powerful insights and conclusions.

This book is one of those books that you can always open randomly and immediately relate to what is on the page. You will find in it all the wisdom and practical advice that you will ever need to create a real change towards the life you wish to have.

One Girl in Auschwitz

One Girl in Auschwitz

How will one girl survive the horrors of Auschwitz on her own?

Poland, 1944. The train slowed and halted with a squeal of the brakes. It felt like they waited in the carriage for an eternity, but eventually, the heavy doors opened, directly into the chaos outside.

Sarh Leibovits, a 16-year-old Jewish girl, was a passenger on the train, together with her family. Within minutes, their horrific fate was sealed.

The little family spent its final minutes together on the platform at Auschwitz, before its members were dispersed in all directions, and each was left alone to their own fate.

Isolated from her family, Sara was left alone to face the many physical labors and the lowest points of her life, while trying to maintain values like courage, faith and helping others, all to survive the true manifestation of Hell on earth – Auschwitz.

This is the moving story of Sara Leibovits, laced with hair-raising descriptions of her time in Auschwitz and the incredible pain and hardships she went through, together with the rest of the survivors. Her story is intertwined with that of her daughter, seventy years later, who embodies the voice of the second generation and completes the Holocaust survivors’ tale.

Death was the last thing on Andy Drooker's mind when he woke up on the morning of August 6, 2013.

Betrayed by his allies, he knows that he can trust no one.

Arik Bar-Nathan is one of the most skilled field agents in the international espionage scene. Coming from a childhood in the slums, he has accomplished nearly every goal and is now head of the Caesarea Special Operations Division in the Israeli Mossad, and second in command of the organization.

However, for the first time in his life, things are not going exactly according the plan.

Despite having been assured by the Prime Minister that the position of head of the Mossad would be his, a harsh woman with a dark secret has been appointed to the role. In addition, Arik’s personal life begins to spiral out of control following a horrific accident in Paris.

But the worst is yet to come. An assassination attempt gone wrong in Morocco leads Arik into a fast-paced chase after the seasoned terrorist Ayman al-Uzbeki, but before long he realizes that his British allies have turned their back on him and are using him as bait in their game.

His life in danger, Arik knows that he can trust no one but himself to keep him alive. Now, more than ever, it is becoming clear that it is only a matter of time before an inevitable collision – one that is not necessarily with his enemies.

The Good Enough Studio

The Good Enough Studio

Organize your space in the best way to achieve therapeutic significance.

“The good enough studio”—derived from D.W. Winnicott’s notion of the good enough mother—serves as a safe space where clients, students, and artists find modes of expression and being that unveil their own authenticity and connection to the archaic creativity of humanity.

As a global art therapist and educator, Nona Orbach facilitates this profound alchemy of self-transformation by attending to the nonverbal, intuitive choreography that each individual uses in order to create.

In Orbach’s groundbreaking therapeutic model, the consciously organized studio is a place of acceptance where actions, materials, and the space itself “speak” and guide discovery.

    • In this book readers will learn how to:
  • Organize an open-studio setting
  • Create an environment of acceptance and choice that facilitates transformation
  • Understand action-material relationships as emotional and pedagogical communication
  • Discern and mirror each individual’s creative blueprint

The insights of The Good Enough Studio will cultivate the work of those interested in the phenomenology of materials: artists, educators, therapists, and parents, as well as the nonprofessional and curious reader. Through guidance and case studies, Orbach shows how the creator’s poetic truth can lead to integration and well-being.

Nona Orbach is a multidisciplinary artist, therapist, blogger, lecturer, and facilitator of workshops for art therapists in Israel and around the world. Her artwork engages with archeological and historical contexts and is compiled under the title Tel-Nona. As an excavator in the Tel (mound) and preserver of the artifacts in a blog/virtual library, Nona metaphorically revives the great Alexandrian library that burnt down with its million scrolls in the first century BCE. Tel-Nona preserves its spirit of sharing knowledge in an international humanistic project.

She also leads a social movement to change the Israeli education system through the learning and understanding afforded by the studio and the language of materials. Her online learning community includes over 7,000 participants from the fields of education and therapy. She has created an English blog and a study group with the title of this book to circulate her ideas internationally.

Her previous book, The Spirit of Matter, co-authored with Lilach Gelkin, has been an immensely useful tool for therapists and educators for many years. Published in Israel in 1977, the PDF English version of the book is sold on her website.

From Adam's Apple to Newton's Apple

Our world's eternal questions answered by the Kabbalah, modern physics and the astonishing resemblance between them.

During the 1920s, the world was changed forever when a new theory in physics — quantum theory — was developed. To this very day, this theory enables us to predict the behavior of physical bodies and explains many natural phenomena.

Decades later, Dr. Shemer Keydar embarked on the study of physics and found an amazing parallel between the theories he was learning and the principles of Kabbala and Hasidism. Principles such as the creation of the world from nothing, the unity found in nature, the development of mankind, and the power of the human intellect are all presented and illustrated through the light of quantum physics and Kabbalah.

Dr. Shemer (Shmariahu) Keydar, a highly respected researcher and the author of numerous scientific papers, has developed his interest in the relationship between Judaism and modern physics over the last two decades, and now invites you to join him on this special journey.

Shadow Soldier

He does not relish killing, but in a world of wars every fighter knows it is the only way to survive.

Erez Eliav, an Israeli soldier in an elite unit, leads his life according to the code of warriors— morality, loyalty, responsibility, respect for others and the enemy, and cruelty alongside generosity.

Like many warriors, he has no desire to kill, but in a country that is fighting for its existence, he has no choice. Nothing, however, has prepared him for the moment when terrorism reaches him, turning his life into scorched earth. He returns to the place he knows best, but this time motivated only by revenge.

In a poignant, uninhibited and sometimes even crude style, the author, who served in a secret unit of the Israel Defense Forces, tells an enlightening story spanning forty years. From his childhood to his enlistment, through to his experience as a soldier who becomes an officer and a leader. The impossible operations, some of which succeed and some of which fail. The fascinating women. The passion surrounding life as a fighter.

Roni Eliav still serves in the reserve forces with the rank of lieutenant colonel. He was part of an elite unit during his mandatory service and stayed on as a career officer. Today he lives in Ashkelon, Israel with his partner.

The Neighbor from Bergen Belsen

A moving story, wrapped in humor, about love, loss, and hope in one of history’s darkest hours.

1933. Hitler’s rise to power in Germany marks the beginning of the end for the Jews of Europe. For little newborn Yaakov, this is only the beginning.

Hungary, 1944. 11-year-old Yaakov and his parents and younger sister are forced out of their home into the unknown. They find themselves in the ghetto, living under impossible conditions, until they are banished by the Nazis to Bergen Belsen concentration camp through Austria, what might be their final destination.

This is a unique story about the unyielding love of a mother, who fought to protect her two young children from harm while helping every stranger who crossed her path, about belief in God, and the naïve perspective of a child in such a difficult and challenging time.

This is not just another Holocaust story. This is the story of an era, when tears of joy and tears grief flow together to the sea, and angels dressed in white battle with angels in black. It is laced with delicate humor and written in associative language, allowing you to relate to the story, no matter at what page you open the book.

Once you open this book, you will not be able to put it down until you have completed it.

Religion Caught in Its Own Net

The fascinating account of a former Rabbi about the effect of ancient religious laws on modern culture

In the modern era, when equality, freedom, and happiness are man’s most important values, the harsh contrast with the ancient world of strict religious laws of Judaism, formed 1,500 years ago, is undeniable.

This book is a must read for anyone who wishes to understand the religious concepts that presently control the lives of Orthodox Jews, and in some ways, the lives of secular Jews as well. Whether they respect religion, hate or fear it, secular Jews are often unaware that the problem is rooted in the religious worldview as such, and not in the character or habits of the people who live it.

Some examples can be found in the now obsolete religious laws targeting anyone who is not observant: a permission to kill a secular Jew, a prohibition to save a non-Jewish life, a law that deems any non-Jew an untrustworthy liar, and many more.

Yaron Yadan is a special person. He is an expert on Judaism, having served as a Rabbi and the head of a Jewish religious seminar, and today he is a secular Jew who continues to learn and investigate the world he left behind. Through this unique book, Yadan opens for his readers a vista into the religious language and worldview and provides a basis of knowledge for anyone disturbed by questions of identity, religion, and nationality.

Winds of Strife

“They burned me and mine. I'm not done until I burn them and theirs in return.”

Witch-hunts have plagued the kingdom of Olyanath for decades. Thousands were slain due to the king’s paranoia of women who practice Senspiritic magic.

No more.

Nye and his companions have seen enough of murder and misogyny. Fifteen years have passed since he joined the witch-hunters, and now, at long last, an opportunity to destroy them from the inside reveals itself.

An opportunity to overthrow the king and end his reign of cruelty.

But fifteen years of pretense have taken a toll. The strive for vengeance has steered Nye toward a path of violence and villainy. His hands are stained by the blood of countless innocents, his heart is scorched by grief, and his sanity hangs by a thread.

Even if he can kill the king and see this revolution through, it may not suffice to purge the voices from his head.

An Heiress of Holocaust

An Heiress of Holocaust

A unique memoir of Holocaust atrocities and life under their heavy influence

Poland, 1942. "My mom told me how her sister, Cirella, threw her two-year-old daughter Bella from the window of the moving train that was taking them to the concentration camp Treblinka. How the mother had leaped after the baby but was killed by the bullet of a Polish guard. Mom told how the toddler was last seen sitting in the place where she had fallen, while a Polish woman gathered her up into her lap. You have a cousin in Wysokie Mazowickie who surely survived. Maybe one day you will manage to find her."

Sarah Segal tells the horrific tale of the Holocaust, the gripping story of her family and her ravaged home. She relates the story of a family member who served in the special Sonderkommando unit in Auschwitz, who spent six years in the Holocaust with death breathing down his neck. She describes how this brave group of strong Jewish men were forced to aid the Nazis in carrying out the Final Solution to the Jewish problem. How these prisoners of Auschwitz managed to go on after sending their victims to the gas chambers and then to the crematoriums.

The author goes on to describe the defining moments of her childhood after the Holocaust, when her family immigrated to the State of Israel. She recounts her childhood in the shadow of a Holocaust survivor mother, the responsibility she undertook as a child by becoming an anchor for her mother’s bi-polar disorder, and how her family never escaped the ever-present black mantle of the Holocaust.

An Heiress of the Holocaust allows the reader a rare glimpse into the darkest time in human history, and its continuous and devastating effect on the lives of Holocaust survivors and their successors.

Boys of Courage

Boys of Courage

To stay with your parents and younger siblings, with everyone risking death, or to try and save at least your own self?

Poland, 1939. Kadish, a daring young man and the cousin of the author, puts his life on the line in order to smuggle food into the starving ghetto, to sustain his distressed parents and help his younger cousin. After he escapes the ghetto through the sewers, the author never sees Kaddish again, nor does he know whether he has survived hell.

Israel, the present. “Lifting the receiver, still groggy with sleep, I heard an un¬familiar voice utter my full name and ask if it was me on the line. I replied, “yes,” a bit angrily, not happy at being woken at such an hour. Apologizing, the caller identified himself as Yaakov from the Forensic Institute in Yaffo."

This was the conversation that led to a series of chilling meetings between two seniors, who reveal their stories of growing up and performing daring deeds under the horrific shadow of the Holocaust, a depiction of their experience in the choking Warsaw Ghetto, which was destroyed with its half a million residents, survival using the fake identity of a Christian child, fighting in the forests and conducting operations of retaliation against the Nazis.

Boys of Courage is a window into the atrocities and injustices that humans are capable of inflicting on their neighbors, seemingly convinced they are acting for their own good and that of their country and faith. On the other hand, it tells how against all odds, the two heroes learned, each in his own different and utterly powerful way, to cope by overcoming hardship and loss. The pair learn how to fight and bounce back; how to rejoice and love intensely.

The Manager’s Dilemma

85% OF PROJECTS IN THE WORLD EXCEED THEIR ALLOTTED BUDGET AND TIME. THIS HAPPENS BECAUSE IT IS BENEFICIAL TO THE PARTIES INVOLVED.

Every one of the parties working on a project has their own interests, which many times are conflicted with the interests of the project itself. Nothing affects the progression of projects more than this conflict of interests, and yet, the theory of project management disregards it entirely.

The Manager’s Dilemma is a groundbreaking project management book. It explains why the Critical Path and the Critical Chain methods fail time and time again, and paves a new road to project efficiency improvement, through the Theory of Constraints and Game Theory.

“The Manager’s Dilemma” does to project management what “The Goal” did to production management and “The Critical Chain” did to schedule management.

Eric is a chief engineer in a contractor company, who switches sides and begins to work for government’s Ministry of Transportation. On his first day at work, he discovers that a third of all the office’s efforts are focused on protection from lawsuits by contractors whose services they have hired. In addition, he sees that even the project managers and plannershired by the office, work more in their own interest than in that of their projects. Together with an extravagant lawyer, and the brilliant members of his family, he utilizes his knowledge of the contractors world to understand why these things happen. Together, they devise an extraordinary way to change the rules of the game and make the project’s success the personal interest of each and every one of its participants.

Asaf Morag is the founder of ACTech, a provider of the information & collaborations platform necessary for projects. ACTech’s eco-system, which was built upon the principles displayed in this book, enable the implementation of the book’s insights in every infrastructure and construction project. It helps changing the conflicts-of-interests environment of most projects into a win-win environment.

Space is all there is

A Theory of Everything (TOE) is a single, all-encompassing theoretical framework of physics that fully explains and links together all physical aspects of the universe. For many years, physicists have been trying to build a TOE, but without success.

In this book, which is a simple summary of his scientific work, Dr. Shlomo Barak presents a TOE in which Space is all there is – the physical reality as merely deformations and waves of the infinite elastic SPACE lattice. This TOE reveals the nature of matter, forces, and the elementary particles, among other subjects and resolves long-standing issues.

Besides theoretical results this theory also yields, for the first time in physics, accurate derivations, and calculations of the attributes, such as masses, of the elementary particles.

Dr. Shlomo Barak

Shlomo Barak was born and lives in Israel. He holds a Ph.D. in Physics from the Hebrew University of Jerusalem. He has contributed to the defense of his country. He has contributed to technology and to the economy of his country. His contribution to science is a recently published collection of scientific papers and books.

The Network of Time

Is time real or is it just an illusion?

Time is so basic in our lives that we sometimes take it for granted. But stop for a moment and think: What is time? How can it be defined? If you delve into the definition of the concept of time, not only will you find that the answer to these questions is no trivial matter, but also that surprisingly, no single clear answer has ever been found and agreed upon by all.

Written in simple, clear language, the book takes the reader on a fascinating journey down the evolution of defining the concept of time, from antiquity and up to the 21st century. It describes how the revolutionary theories of relativity and quantum mechanics in 20th century physics opened up new directions of thought in this field.

Whether you know nothing about the subject or are a professor of physics, Alon Halperin will tell you exactly what you need to know: from philosophical questions about the perception of reality, time travel, determinism and free choice, to the mysteries rooted in quantum theory, up to the complexity theory, and the strikingly fresh insights it gives rise to regarding us and the entire world.

At the Last Moment

The tragic battle of the Polish Jews for emigration in the period before the Holocaust.

At the Last Moment is a riveting book based on the doctoral work of Irith Cherniavsky, which deals with Polish Jewry between the two world wars, and documents their desire to leave under enormous hardship in order to save themselves in the years preceding the Holocaust.

Even before World War II and the Holocaust Poland had turned into a trap for its Jewish residents. Over three million Jews lived in the country, many of whom wished to leave, but only a small percentage were able to get exit permits and flee. The limited number of permits available drove them to a desperate fight for every single certificate.

The book describes the struggle for emigration and presents this tragic situation from the viewpoint of the individual: Poland’s bad financial, social and political situation, and the even harsher circumstances of its Jewish population, the closing of the world’s doors on the face of Jewish immigrants, the battles waged to obtain immigration visas, the cost of immigrating and the obstacles along the way.

Besides a heartbreaking description of the Polish Jews’ struggle for immigration.

Dr. Irith Cherniavsky reveals the wrenching pain of separation from family, community, friends and the entire world the few who managed to emigrate left behind, a world that became practically extinct during the Holocaust just a few years later.

Daniel learns that when he reaches the age of 14, he will turn into a hawk totem and the visions he will see, will allow him to save humanity from Neogg.But the hawk’s powers are in danger and the heads of the Almanous Council are left with no choice.

I’ve always wanted a daughter

A mother's powerful, honest memoir that sheds light on the process of her daughter's gender transformation and the wonderful things she learned along the way.

When Ofrit brought her firstborn daughter into this world, a dream she always had, she was on cloud nine.

She had no idea what the future had in store for her.

“Mom, I want to get a haircut." That is how it all began. “What is she talking about?” Ofrit thought to herself, puzzled. "Where did this come from all of a sudden? To cut her long, blond, streaming hair, that scissors had never touched from the day she was born? After all, she had never wanted to get a haircut."

That is how it all started, without any warning, in the middle of her life.

For Liron, however, this did not come out of nowhere. For years she had wanted to live by her own truth, and fight for what was right for her.

Liron carried her Mom away on the rapids, adhering to decisions that changed the whole family. Overnight, Ofrit’s dream was shattered and her personal world underwent an enormous upheaval.

All the while, Liron gradually turned into a handsome young man, and through his own journey, he tought Ofrit new things about herself—infinite determination, hope, love of others, lines that one should not try to straighten according to what society dictates and that free choice is as much a person’s right as their obligation.

I’ve Always Wanted a Daughter is a moving, sometimes unsettling, memoir that provides a true and honest glimpse, full of hope and love of into the new life experienced by the family members of those who decide to enter a gender transformation process.

The Last Hand

My memory was erased. But there are things I’m not willing to forget.

A key, bus ticket, cigarettes and an old picture photo of a boy and girl saying goodbye at a train station. This is all I had in my pocket when I was arrested.

They claim I am a swindler and have stolen money from the casino, but that’s not true. I am just a wizard. A mediocre wizard who came here to get some practice.

Because as long as I take care of the little magic I possess, I still have hope.

The only thing that matters to me is finding her. My childhood girlfriend from the old photograph. Besides her, nobody else has ever loved me.

Nothing really affected me. Neither the beatings nor the threats. Nothing at all.

Until they made one mistake too many.

And that which is about to happen now, they will never forget…

An eye-opening myth-shattering saga through the New Testament

The New Testament is considered around the world as the holiest of books that presents God and Jesus Christ. However, this faith, so widespread today, was once no more than the opinion of a minority.

The belief that Jesus is God himself was instituted by the vote of 300 bishops at the Council of Nicaea. The perception of Mary Magdalene as a sinner in the eyes of Christians stems from a whim of Pope Gregory the Great.

The author takes you on a special journey in which he breaks with the teachings of the New Testament through an analysis of the Council of Nicaea, which shaped the basis of the Christian creed that exists to this day.

He integrates into this book his articles, using his deep acquaintance with the fields of art and the New Testament to put universal common beliefs on trial.

Iranian Air Force Commander Major General Safawi is urgently summoned by the President of the Islamic Republic of Iran. “I have decided to send the heretic British nation a gift, or to be precise, a nuclear gift”.

Lieutenant Colonel Kabadi, a brilliant operations officer with a stellar reputation, is appointed to plot and carry out the mission. Kabadi puts together an elite team which plans and executes the President’s order.

On the day of the operation, the charge does indeed arrive in the outskirts of London, but the secret is uncovered. Within minutes, rumors of an undercover Iranian operation spread throughout the city, and eight million residents try to flee in panic, unleashing violent riots and causing many casualties.

They Called Him a Gangster

A powerful memoir about a secret life with the head of the mafia

Only few people are well acquainted with Meyer Lansky, known as the ‘Mob’s Accountant’ who, in his youth, managed the investments of the New York mafia and was considered one of the leading figures of the city’s underworld.

Most of the stories known to the public are related to his past illegal activities. But as we are all aware, there is more than one side to every story.

The Other Side of the Story is a captivating biography that sheds a positive new light on the character of the "Gangster".

Zali de Toledo was a teenager who arrived in Israel into a new culture, wishing simply to make a fresh start in her beloved country.

While working as a waitress in the "Dan" hotel lobby, the two met, as fate would have it. Soon, an intimate relationship developed between them and their secret love blossomed and flourished.

In this riveting unique memoir, de Toledo reveals the powerful love affair she had with Lansky, the hundreds of letters he wrote to her over the years, the other personality and sensitivity of the man who was, in the eyes of many, a criminal, the little things between him and her, and the tough decisions they had to make.

Stuck in Paradise

If you are in paradise, how can you be stuck?

As a practical and geographical abstraction of paradise in our world, Dr. Amos Raviv chose three archipelagoes in the Pacific, which he named the Triangle of Paradise: Samoa, Tonga and Fiji. Three different islands, on each one of which a person can find their own private paradise.

So how can one really attach the word “stuck” when referring to paradise?

Stuck in Paradise is about people Amos and his wife Anat met while sailing around the world on a catamaran. These people—rich and poor, happy and sad, foreigners and locals—despite living physically in the paradise of the Pacific, are often deprived of joy and pleasure.

This book brings philosophical thoughts about the essence of paradise from the standpoints of a diverse group of people, with different characters, temperaments and backgrounds. Within this mosaic, everyone can find the answers to the question of what their own private paradise truly is.

Sometimes even when everything goes your way—you might just be walking down the wrong road.

The Dead Hand

Pinochet's military coup in Chile through the eyes of innocent children

La Manita Muerta (The Dead Hand) is a compilation of short stories that allow the reader to become acquainted with the lives of their characters under the dictatorship regime in Chile after the military overthrew the elected democratic government in 1973, and their attempt to continue with their daily routines despite and in face of all the existential dangers and violations of basic individual rights.

The stories evolve around the life of David Silberman, who was the prominent manager of a mining operation in the north of the country and a socialist political activist, who was kidnapped by the military after the government was overthrown.

Each story stands on its own, but they are interconnected through a single riveting plot, which is based on the real events and chosen to be told from the unique perspective of women and children, because history is mostly related by male adult characters.

The plot follows the realities of life under a Latin American dictatorship, but there is a hidden message for all readers worldwide. In Chile, the democratic values were shattered overnight in an abrupt transition by a well-timed military coup, while in the rest of the western free world there is a slow and gradual erosion of the values of freedom and democracy that may ultimately lead to similar consequences.

Chasing the Prophet

What would you do if in order to save all humanity, only one man had to be sacrificed… and that one person were you?

As the fear of nuclear attack becomes more real than ever, the key to saving everyone's lives lies in the courageous relationship between a shy teenager and his loyal dog.

Our planet is on the verge of World War III and a cloud of paralyzing fear is drifting in the air.

While the leaders of the free world try to find a solution to the continuing crisis, the voice of The Prophet—a mysterious figure that has gathered momentum in the last few years—becomes increasingly louder.

The lives of thousands have already been saved thanks to his appearances in the media during which he issues timely warnings against natural disasters and dangerous events.

Within an already unstable security situation growing worse due to a deepening recession, an unemployed detective named Paul McBride is invited for a job interview. Paul suspects someone senior is behind this offer, perhaps even the prophet himself. The task given to Paul seems too easy: to follow a shy, introverted high school student named David who is always escorted by Max, his dog.

Soon the investigator finds out the young man is hiding a dark secret of far reaching consequences.

When David’s secret is discovered by evildoers, he finds himself with his back against the wall, forced to demonstrate incredible courage in order to save himself, his loved ones, and the entire human race. But… will that suffice?

Control Your Hunger and Find the Way Out of the Dieting Circle

At any given time, millions of people around the world are on a diet, with their eyes on one goal only—to lose weight.

In today’s world, anyone who wishes to shed unwanted weight and also remain slim must first of all work on their thought patterns. Without this, the process is doomed to fail.

In this book you’ll find a simple but powerful tool that can help you change your life—first mentally and then also physically. The book will show you how you can leave the infinite circle of dieting, learn to control your appetite and identify where it’s coming from—your body or your emotions. With time, you will realize that your eating habits have turned into intuitive eating (eating according to your actual hunger), and your emotional eating has stopped (you don't eat for emotional reasons like peer pressure, or boredom, to name a few).

One of the main ideas brought up in this book is personifying the hunger we all have inside and imagining it as a small selfish and greedy character named Gulo. The Gulo pushes us to eat as much as possible, regardless of our physical hunger or true desires.

As you collect victories over the Gulo, you’ll realize the war being waged inside you is subsiding.

Your humongous objective, losing weight—will become a reality.

The train is heading towards Holland as a stopover on the family's way to the Land of Israel (then "Palestine"). Once reaching the border, they hear an SS officer shouting their name: “Where is the Bach family? Get off the train now, with your luggage!” All their belongings are scattered on the ground for the search. The train is about to leave…Finally the order comes: "Okay, take your luggage and get out of here!"

Gabriel Bach – a skinny eleven-year-old boy, finds himself standing on the platform with a heavy suitcase. Suddenly, an SS officer appears behind Gabriel and gives him a strong kick, which lifts him and his suitcase from the platform back onto the train. “I will never forget” says Gabriel Bach in his stunning memoir, “the fact that I was literally kicked out of Germany by the Nazis.”

22 years later, in 1960, that boy, now Deputy State Attorney in Israel Gabriel Bach is appointed as the person in charge of the investigation of Adolph Eichmann, the main designer and executioner of the Nazi "Final Solution". Then, In April 1961 he becomes one of the three prosecuting attorneys, representing the State of Israel in one of the most talked about court cases in history, The Eichmann trial, which continues to this day to arouse a lot of interest all over the world.

Over the years he has travelled to many countries to speak in front of various audiences, particularly in Germany, about the Eichmann trial and about genocide and crimes against humanity, guided by a sense of mission to raise consciousness to the Holocaust and its implications.

It's Sarah's 45th birthday, and her husband, Ben, jokingly says that she is stuck with him, because the chance of a woman her age finding a new man, is smaller than being attacked by a terrorist.

Sarah, who finds this statement both insulting and depressing, proposes a bet: they will separate for three months. During those three months, they will both be free to explore other sexual partners and prove to each other that they are still attractive to others. Together they set down the rules: they will tell no one, they will not date any of their mutual friends, and they most definitely will not fall in love. Thus begins “The Bet".

The happy couple begin their exploration of love and commitment, sure they will succeed. But very soon, they discover that rules are made to be broken and a Pandora box once opened, cannot be closed.

The Bumbling Buyout

Welcome to the start-up that is about to change the world… If only its founders knew what the hell they were supposed to do…

When Shuki, a young software tester, realizes his career has reached a dead end, he decides to quit his job and venture out on a business of his own.

Shuki is joined by a new CEO with a problematic background and together (along with some other colorful high-tech outcasts) they set off on a challenging journey, hoping to hit it big and become millionaires.

The idea behind this new start-up is mind-blowing, but its execution turns out to be technically unfeasible. Or so it may seem…

Nothing, however, keeps them from coming out with bombastic announcements, which will need to stand up to the scrutiny of the entire world. Will they achieve glory and amass huge fortunes, or will the bubble burst in their faces?

The Bumbling Buyout, written in a light and humorous tone with a few bits of dark humor, is proof that not behind every great idea is a successful company.

Dream big. Set ambitious goals. Attain unusual achievements.

At the age of 68, while still recovering from his second knee injury, Dr. Zeev Gilkis decided to give himself an unusual present for his 70th birthday.

He dreamed of running a full Marathon, and completing the seventh decade of his life seemed to him the ideal timing to do so.

Perhaps this ambitious goal wouldn’t have been so unusual, had he been a very physically active person in his younger years. But Zeev is a cancer survivor who began his ‘career’ in sports relatively late, in his mid-sixties.

As two years is a long time, he set a milestone for his 69th birthday: to go mid-way – running a half marathon.

Along with his plans and dreams he kept a diary where he recorded the ups and downs, practical tips and original thoughts that crossed his mind in this long, challenging journey.

Join Zeev in this adventure and discover that age doesn't matter. You too can achieve anything you truly dream of.

In his first two books: Unlock Bliss, A Memoir of Getting Happier and The Secret of Life, A Memoir of Getting Younger, Dr. Zeev Gilkis shares with readers the story of his struggle with cancer, some important and original thoughts and insights into life and happiness, such as that “Age doesn’t matter!” among many others.

In a very simple writing style, he describes some of the key processes in the brain, the role of the immune system and how to care for it, the story of how he got into sports in his sixties, and much more good stuff.

Hope Comes Knocking

"They shot me, Micky."

Those were the words Micky Seiffe managed to scratch on the wall in front of him with his fingernails as the Egyptian soldiers standing behind him readied their weapons with the express intention of executing him.

When Micky was sent to the UN zone on the Suez Canal, he could not have imagined that in the morning of October 8, 1973 he would be facing the muzzles of Egyptian guns. That was the opening shot to the six weeks of physical and psychological torture in which he was certain more than once that death would catch up with him.

But the human survival instinct is stronger than anything. By controlling his thoughts and using his imagination Micky succeeded in disconnecting mentally and emotionally from what was happening around him and preventing his captors from hurting his soul.

This one-of-a-kind story is presented in a vivid, chilling and thought-provoking way. The war in the battlefield and the struggle for physical and mental survival in the prison are interwoven with the presence of death every second, almost touching, in the most horrifying circumstances. Hope Comes Knocking is an inspiring story, a lesson from the legacy of warfare worthy of being learned, and a must read for every human being.

Scattered Rays of Light

Scattered Rays of Light

One big family. Immediate danger of destruction. Tiny rays of hope.

Yaakov was the youngest son of the Kotowskis, a well-to-do Jewish family in the small Polish town of Skulsk, who enjoyed the respect and admiration of local Jews and Christians alike.

The quiet life of the family was disrupted abruptly when Nazi Germany invaded Poland.

Soon, its members were deported to a faraway village where they suffered horrific torments at the hands of the Germans and their collaborators.

The head of the family, who was blessed with sharp instincts, grasped what was about to take place and instructed his children to disperse in different directions, in the hope that at least some of them would be able to survive.

This is the fascinating story of the Kotowski family, who was thrown deep into the flames that lit the fire that exterminated six million Jews, and yet, over half of the ten-member family managed to flee the blazing inferno against all odds.

The Bright Side of Smartphones

Take advantage of the smartphone to strengthen your relationship with your child.

Slightly over a decade has elapsed since Steve Jobs unveiled a new, exciting, and intriguing product, developed by Apple—the first smartphone. We have since been living through a social revolution that has changed the way we communicate with one another, including within our own families.

During working hours, parents and children talk mostly about routine matters like the day’s events or whether they have done their homework, but the emotional component, so critical to a family, is missing.

Today, creating that emotional connection is one of the most important challenges parents face with.

After years of treating children and offering parenting advice, Liat Zelzer is convinced that children will respond happily to emotional communication conveyed by technological means. If done properly, this can go beyond the technical issues of the day and transmit feelings of warmth between family members when they are not in the same physical space.

In her book, Liat presents common situations in family life where parents are at work and wish to provide their children with support, help, or be part of their experiences, while also ensuring their wellbeing remotely. Through real-life examples from parents, Liat shows useful solutions through the use of a smartphone. This book suggests a broad range of ways of creating communication that bring families closer by showing the true potential rather than the downside usually attributed to this technology, in order to promote and aid our family goals.

A quick glimpse into the therapy room of a professional surrogate partner

Lilly, a woman in her late forties, lives a double life. In one of them, known to everyone, she teaches design in high school and leads an ordinary life, raising her two children. In the other one, hidden from people’s eyes, she is a professional surrogate who helps men solve their sexual problems.

Through the personal story of David, one of the patients, she provides a rare glimpse into the various stages, presented through true stories straight from her intriguing therapy room.

Every patient has a story, and each one of them suffers from different problems, but they all have one common denominator—they are incapable of intimacy with a woman, and Lilly’s job is to help set them free.
